  • bodybuilding help for a friend

    Hey guys I have a friend who wants to do a show here pretty soon. I gave him all the tips I could on what I think he should improve. Although, I am not a bodybuilding judge and I wouldn't know how you would score him. He just wants to do our local show, nothing big. So, if you guys could watch this video I took of him going through a small posing routine and then give some feed back I'll pass it a long to him.

    thanks

    Skip's got an excellent posing section on his video. I use a lot of the pointers he gave in this video and get a lot of complements on my posing.

    Also, I'm not sure if this is mentioned in the video, but once he learns the poses correctly he needs to make a practice schedule for his posing as the show nears. Increase the amount of practice sessions and the time he holds each pose as the contest gets closer.

    One question though, you said he is doing a show soon, how soon?

      I think he is 7 or 8 weeks out. I told him he should have started his prep sooner, but he didn't. Do you think he will be able to be contest ready by then ?

      Thanks for the tips, ill pass them on.

        He needs to hit cardio and diet hard if he wants to do the show. He is fat. Posing needs a lot of work, cut out the theatrics before each pose just do the pose. Have him watch skips posing part of the DVD.
